Quick fix

This took no more than 5 minutes.

I just got some thin elastic (that part took days), threaded it through the bottom edge of the shrug, secured at the armpits, and voilà!

That's another sundress, by the way - sleeveless and with a deep-V in the front - so the shrug could be conceivably paired with it.

Closing thought - there's no doubt that you have a more intimate knowledge of my wardrobe than my own mother.

Wow that wonderfully concealed the slight gappyness at the arms!

Looks great!

Aaah, this makes sense.

Much better :)

nice! i'm happy to see this because i suspect i'm going to have a similar problem with my cotton shrug that i'm working on now.

did you order the elastic online or buy it in a store?

Eh.. what do moms know about fashion anyways? ; P

I just found your blog, and I love it! I often refer to myself as Grumpy McGrumpster, so I can certainly relate. Also, I read your Nordstrom's nightmare, and was very impressed with the letter you got in response! You go with your grumpy self. Love the shrug, and I'll keep reading!

Wow - that's a quick fix that makes a big difference. The shrug looks terrific!

It's pretty amazing, the things we out here in blogland know about each other that our mothers don't! Must be a blog entry in there somewhere...

Oh wow, it is completely perfect now! Nice fix!!

Genius. Depending how my shrug fits when finished I may have to steal this fix. Cute sundress too!

What a creative solution!

BCBG--that's good stuff.

Great idea. Where did you get the elastic from?

MUCH better!

See, now, I wouldn't even begin to know how to search for such an elastic. I mean do you type in "elastic?" Is it a special kind? Does it have a certain name?

All these questions would swirl in my head until, finally, I just gave up. Or, asked you. ;-)

See, this is why YOU're the Neuroscientist. Hehehe.

What a great idea, smart girl, but we knew that already. I love your work.

Geez girl, you've got a sweet wardrobe. Jeans from Anthro, sundresses from BCBG. I'm a little jealous.

Just saw magKnits, great job!!
